|Karl M V Waugh - De Cycled|
These two recordings are very much artefacts of sound, documents of something. One is a field recording, albeit a staged field, initially to be used in one project but the recordings around it didn't make the cut, then it was transferred to a solo project. Whilst in the solo project a number of layers were added, it missed out on being on one release and then I decided to remix it and most of those layers were removed, until I became comfortable with the concept of leaving it, almost, completel...
